International Nurses Day is celebrated on Sunday May 12th to coincide with the date of Florence Nightingale’s birthday. Nurses on duty at Guild Care’s care home, Caer Gwent in Worthing, were treated to a special celebration complete with cake and cards. Flowers were also presented to two residents who were formerly a nurse and a midwife, respectively.

"Nursing is more than a vocation, it’s a highly skilled profession,” said Clare Feest, Manager of Caer Gwent in Downview Road. “We are fortunate to have such a wonderful team of nine registered nurses here with us at Caer Gwent. A member of our nursing team is on duty 24/7, so if one of our residents is unwell at any time of day or night, a nurse always on hand here to help. We really appreciate our nurses, so it’s nice to recognise how important they are, on International Nurses Day and every day.”

Social care charity, Guild Care, has three beautiful care homes in the Worthing area, each of which always has a nursing team on the premises for round-the-clock care. Caer Gwent is set around mature landscaped gardens, and offers superb residential living in a comfortable, welcoming environment support from a well-established team of carers, as well as the added peace of mind that comes from professional nursing care at all times.

For residents, this means extra help with managing existing conditions such as diabetes, professionally administered medications, or simply the peace of mind that comes with knowing that a Registered Nurse is always nearby. There’s no need to wait for district nurses who are under pressure from their valuable roles in the wider community.
